Why help protect your patients with AVAXIM® Vaccine?

  • Hepatitis A remains one of the most common travel-related vaccine preventable diseases, although, the incidence in travellers is declining.1
  • Hepatitis A is caused by a virus which is usually acquired through the consumption of food or water contaminated by human faeces. Foods such as undercooked meat and fish can be a risk as well as foods that grow close to the ground such as lettuce and strawberries. It can also be acquired through person to person contact.1
  • The risk of acquiring hepatitis A is highest in low-income countries with poor sanitary conditions. Regions where hepatitis A is highly endemic include the Indian sub-continent (particularly Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan), Sub-Saharan and North Africa, parts of the Far East (except Japan), South and Central America and the Middle East.1
  • There is no specific treatment for hepatitis A but risk can be reduced by following advice on food and water hygiene, and by ensuring good personal hygiene.1
